Fuel Saving Tip: Fuel System Cleaning

A lot of fuel is wasted by drivers in dirty fuel delivery systems. Let’s start at the tank. The fuel tank gathers dirt, rust and sediment over the years of driving. That’s why there’s a fuel filter to clean the fuel after it leaves the tank. A dirty filter will rob the engine of the clean fuel it needs to run efficiently.

The fuel intake components get coated with gum and varnish over time. This results in fuel being delivered inefficiently and some of that gunk getting into the engine. A fuel system service will leave your intake as clean as a whistle.

The big fuel thief is dirty fuel injectors. They deliver fuel to the engine at a specified pressure and in a particular spray pattern. When they’re clogged, the fuel doesn’t get atomized the way it’s supposed to and doesn’t get burned as efficiently.

See your owner’s manual or ask your service advisor for when fuel system cleaning is recommended.
